Abstract

Although overall colorectal cancer incidence and mortality has decreased in those undergoing colonoscopy, there is still a concern regarding efficacy of colonoscopy in detection of right-sided colonic lesions and prevention of colon cancers on the right side. Quality measures in colonoscopy have traditionally looked at detecting adenomatous polyps from throughout the colon. Data regarding polyp detection and cancer prevention in the left vs. right side are sparse.
